I wore both to Tahiti. Swam with dolphins and snorkeled with them. They’re insured so I wear them whenever I travel.

@ms.jellen:  Moorea and Bora Bora were really tourist friendly. Bora Bora was much more “developed” and “commercialized” than Moorea. Moorea people felt much more friendlier. The only part I felt that I had to twist it around to hide the stone was in Tahiti. Some areas felt a bit more “shady” then others when we were exploring Tahiti.

Mine aren’t heirlooms; I would probably think twice about snorkling with your heirloom!

I don’t bring my rings on vacations with me. It’s a good excuse to buy a fun stand in set. 😛

@ms.jellen:  Before we leave for the honeymoon, I’m giving both of my rings to my mom to send them to get fused together. I’ll just wear my favorite inexpensive RHR in its place so I don’t feel so naked. It kinda looks like an ering anyway.

we went to hawaii and i didn’t take my rings with me because i had just lost a diamond, so it was being repaired. i would have taken them with me if i’d had them tho. i wore my promise ring instead. my enagement ring and wedding band are soldered together, so when i wear them it’s all or nothing.

@ms.jellen:  Yup, I kept going back and forth on the decision to have them soldered, and so I just decided to buy a simple gold band for when I want less…ring, lol

@ms.jellen:  We stayed on the Hilton. Got to visit the Intercontinental when we went swimming with the dolphins. They had a sea turtle rehabitation at Intercontinental in addition to the dolphins. If you want to see more animals, that’s a good resort. Food wise and accomodations and if you’re into snorkeling, Hilton and Pearl have great snorkeling.

We stayed in Thailand and Cambodia, I left my rings in the hotel safe during daytime (didn’t want to get them all messed in sunscreen), but wore them in the evenings. Because of the hot and humid weather, DH couldn’t get his wedding band out of his swollen finger at all.

We are going to the Mayan Riviera, and I am absolutely wearing my rings. I won’t be wearing them when I’m in the pool or the ocean. My band is curved to fit around my engagment ring, so I bough a cheap plain sterling band for those times. I’ll also use the sterling band back home for the gym, etc.

We went to the Bahamas and wore our rings. I wore both my rings most of the time, but we did leave our rings in the lock box in our room when we went scuba diving.

Since I am going to Europe (Paris and Spain) I will be wearing both rings. If i were going somewhere that involved swimming, I wouldn’t for fear of losing it in the water!

@ms.jellen:  I would wear both. What fun is a honeymoon if you have to leave your pretty new rings at home? Lol.

 

As long as they’re insured, I would probably do everything in them except stuff like swimming or anything that might damage them. When you’re not wearing them, keep them in the hotel safe.

 

Unless you’re going somewhere third world or dangerous, I wouldn’t think twice about wearing them. I’d probably also bring proof of payment so you’re not held up at customs or anything (like if they assume you bought the ring abroad or something like that – happened to someone I know).
